WordPress Founder Matt Mullenweg to Keynote Flagship Joomla! Conference

Competitors Turn Collaborators as Leaders From the World's Two Largest Content Management Systems Gather Under One Roof

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Oct 1, 2013) - Joomla, one of the world's most popular open source content management systems (CMS) used for everything from websites to blogs to Intranets, today announced that Matt Mullenweg, co-founder of open source CMS WordPress, will give a keynote speech at the Joomla World Conference. Joomla's flagship annual conference runs November 8-10, 2013 in Boston at Harvard University's Joseph B. Martin Conference Center. Mullenweg is scheduled to give the conference's closing keynote on Sunday, November 10.

Joomla and WordPress are the world's two most utilized content management systems. According to independent analysis, more than 23 percent of all websites leverage the two content management systems combined.

"We're excited to have Matt share his experiences because collaboration not only in the Joomla community but among open source projects is essential," said Paul Orwig, president of Open Source Matters, a non-profit created to provide organization, legal and financial support to the Joomla project. "The more ideas we have flowing between open source tools means the more powerful and usable they will be; ultimately making the digital world a better place." 

Mullenweg is one of many high-profile open source and web design personalities including Ethan Marcotte, named by Fast Company Magazine as one of the 100 most creative people in business, who will take the stage at the Joomla World Conference 2013.
